PCI, CABG, & Risks of Post-Procedural Stroke | News Brief

Coronary revascularization with CABG appears to be associated with increased stroke risk at 30 days and at about 1 year when compared with PCI, according to an international investigation. After CABG, the 30-day rate of stroke was 1.20%, compared with 0.34% after PCI. Stroke rates at 12.1 months were 1.83% for those receiving CABG, compared with 0.99% for PCI recipients. The extent of coronary artery disease did not appear to affect stroke risk.
